County elections sends ballots to voters
January 19, 2010
Almost 1.1 million King County ballots will be delivered to the U.S. Postal Service on Jan. 20 for mailing.
King County voters will decide a King County Library System levy, and Issaquah School District voters will decide school levies on the Feb. 9 ballot.
The school measures would raise property tax rates to help pay for school district equipment, like new school buses, and maintain library services.
Ballots for the all-mail election are sent to voters 20 days before elections. Officials mailed nearly 17,000 ballots to voters serving in the military and people living overseas and out of state Jan. 8, to allow extra time for delivery.
Ballots must be returned to the elections office or postmarked by Feb. 9.
Elections officials will also set up three accessible voting centers for people with disabilities. In-person, accessible voting begins Jan. 20 at the elections office, 9010 E. Marginal Way S., Tukwila. The site will be open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Seattle and Bellevue accessible-voting locations will open Feb. 8.
